minimal boot to fix something?
I installed dansguardian on the box mentioned in previous of my posts. there seems to be something wrong as when restart DG or boot it gets stuck with a clamav warning and nothing happens for ages...basically cant book properly now. is there some minimal way of booting i can get in and disable clamav or remove DG??

Boot it into single user mode (i think)

you're right that's thing I was looking for. I remember I've been there before but couldnt remember how. "single user" just sounds so unlike that lol. cheers

It's called single user because it will only allow a single user to log in: root. The init levels are as follows:
2: sing-user with networking, usually
3: multi-user (normal console level)
4/5: multi-user (graphical level)
So a Q&D way to restart is to say (as root): telinit 6.

DansG installed via package, or ./configure && make && make install?
There is a bug lurking in the nether regarding older versions of Dansguardian and newer versions of ClamAV.
I resolved this by configuring and installing DansGuardian from source.
Than moved toward a different solution: SourceForge.net: DansGuardian Anti-Virus plugin
Could you post your ClamAV .conf settings and DG settings regarding ClamAV please?

via pkg. probably that bug. I'll have a go installing from source. what alternative products are there to it?

compiling the src is more trouble than its worth, mainly cos i have no dev utils, well i've installed what I can find out I should (devscripts build-essential fakeroot) but still get errors. cant afford to be massively sidetracked figuring out how to make compile work before i figure out how to make the application work.
